I can't see any fuse box at the foot well

Customer: replied 2 years ago.

Ok found them

Expert:  Gallagher99 replied 2 years ago.
Hi there

The fuse box is part of the gem module which you removed the 2 connectors off and refitted them
There is 2 small black half turn clips at either side
Half turn these and the fuse will drop downward

Yes it now works

Customer: replied 2 years ago.

What is the function of the two boxes that is under the grey door panel passenger side door post since I disconnect them and connect them the car does not start now

Customer: replied 2 years ago.

also by the passenger side door post there is a grey cover and two boxes behind it grey and black I disconnect them and connect them again and now the car does not start

Expert:  Gallagher99 replied 2 years ago.
Hi there


Ok these 2 grey plugs ate the main connectors between the engine modules and the cluster
These plugs carry the high speed communication data wires so if not connected right the Immobilsor light will flash rapidly and no crank will occur

These plugs can be a bit of a pain to clip together if you haven't seen them before

Bascially you need to push the multiplug downward then pull the clip over and it will draw the plug fully home
Also ensure there are no bent puns in any if these connectors from incorrectly refitting the plugs


Kind regards in advance

Brian
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

Hi i think there is a fault some where in the connectors where it joins cause the immobiliser light flash rapidly and the dash doe not light up I began to twist it a bit then the dash lights up is there a way to correct this

Expert:  Gallagher99 replied 2 years ago.
Hi there


Reference my last post seperate both plugs and inspect pins if they are ok
Push the plug downwards and Then flip the clip over

These plugs need to have a really good connection as the can bus data wires run through them along with other important wires


Regards Brian
